Morissette is proud of her new, fit body – because, for the first time, she achieved it in a healthy manner. In addition to her
workout regiment, Morissette, 35, follows a mostly vegan diet inspired by Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s book Eat to Live. “I’m eating like
an adult rather than like a 7-year-old at a candy store,” she says. “Now, around food, I can be trusted.”
The star’s eating issues began in her early teens, when the budding singer was told by a music exec that she had to lose weight
if she wanted to succeed. She quickly took the criticism to an extreme, turning to anorexia and bulimia. “I’d go up and down at
least 20 lbs. fast – sometimes in two weeks,” says Morissette, who became “covert, lonely and isolated.” After years of feeling
helpless, she reached a turning point at age 17 when a friend “followed me to the bathroom,” she says. “I just started sobbing.
She held me, and that was the beginning of the end. I took myself to therapy.”
But Morissette insists there was no heavy emotional issue behind her weight gain last year – not even her highly publicized
2007 split from fiance Ryan Reynolds… “Any breakup I’ve been through, the weeks following are fragile,” she admits. “But when
I go through emotional shifts in life, I actually don’t eat as much.” So what was the cause behind the curves? Simply having fun
on the road. “I was eating Italian food at two in the morning, drinking wine and margaritas,” says Morissette, who dubbed this
period her “Indulgence Tour.” “It was the most fun I’ve ever had! But I didn’t want to stay there…”
[Inset information] The Book. Morrissette’s “redefining moment” came when she discovered Dr. Joel Fuhrman’s diet, which
stresses nutrient-dense foods such as cucumbers and collards. “It was a big lifestyle change for me.”
Her Meals. The singer starts out with a spinach banana smoothie and then digs into a kale salad for lunch. For a snack, she’ll
have her favorite grapefruit.
Mini indulgences. “If I’m PMSing and I really need chocolate, I’ll eat the chocolate.”
